Lil Wayne reportedly given last rites; Mack Maine tweets, ‘Don’t believe the nonsense’!/NathanWurtzel/status/312723052200873984

If you’re not familiar with rapper Lil Wayne, you might be confused by a number of tonight’s trending topics on Twitter, including #PrayForWeezy, Weezy and Damn Wayne. TMZ is reporting that the 30-year-old rapper was being given last rites tonight after being hospitalized Tuesday night at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital following multiple seizures. Label-mate Mack Maine says not so fast, though.

Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game…thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love

A second source from the Young Money Cash Money Billionaires seems to indicate that reports of Lil Wayne’s impending passing are premature.

Last rites? Who said anything about last rites?

Recap: TMZ says someone’s dead. Gets fact checked by man named Birdman. Deletes it w/o explanation. Now expects us all to just move along.

— Michelle Fields (@MichelleFields) March 16, 2013

TMZ scrubbed the last rites thing from the story. No acknowledgment that it was ever there.…

— Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) March 16, 2013

Buzzfeed is mad TMZ pulled a Buzzfeed

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) March 16, 2013

Hey just like Buzzfeed! RT @buzzfeedben: Huh, so TMZ reported, and then deleted all mention of, “last rites” being given to Lil Wayne

— S.M (@redsteeze) March 16, 2013

Rapper T.I. has also expressed some, shall we say, passionate criticism of TMZ’s reporting.
